Melodie is an Associate in the Commercial Leasing Group with a practice that focuses on general leasing matters. Melodie chose a leasing practice because she enjoys working with landlords and tenants as they negotiate their way through complex leasing transactions. Her business acumen is of great benefit in helping clients see the big picture while still focusing on both the legal and business issues at hand.
Melodie acts on matters involving office, retail, industrial, and mixed-use developments drafting and negotiating commercial leases and ancillary documentation. She has helped international businesses looking to establish a presence in Canada and retail tenants looking to implement an aggressive growth strategy.
Melodie is named as a 2018 Rising Star by the Georgetown Advanced Commercial Leasing Institute, an invitation-only conference for experienced leasing lawyers with 10+ years of experience.
Away from the office, Melodie enjoys an active lifestyle that includes hiking and running. These activities require a different focus from law but also require a level of dedication and understanding that she finds helpful in her practice.
